It looked at first as though there was going to be a tie on 4 votes between
three players. I was holding my breath for a D0, waiting for Johnny B to
vote, and sure enough he ruined it by guessing correctly that WARRIDGE was
def 3 - the withers of a horse. Dodi Schutlz also got that right, and was
propelled into the lead and the next deal with an unnatural 6. Johnny
Barrs was the runner up with an unnatural 5.

Take it away for Round 2676, Dodi!

I was a few keystrokes away from a "horse's ass" vote for 3 and 15, but
changed my mind. :)
